The Strokes was a band that I followed in the early 2000s. Everytime they would come to South Florida, I’d religiously go see them in concert. Even if I had to drive two hours to the venue -which I did- I was there! They’re one of the few bands that I can say really deliver live. I was a bit bummed that they kinda disappeared after their release of their 3rd album back in 2006. Then, this past Saturday, I heard they would be performing on SNL (I had a WTH moment), and I was so stoked to see them back and with a new album (being released March 22nd). If there’s one thing I love doing is following the inception and growth of a band. I’m always sad to see great bands pop and fizzle after only one or two albums (especially those that have true potential). Hence, I’m happy to witness The Strokes trudging on. Have you had any favorite bands miraculously come back to life? Love to hear from you! Talk soon, Sue.
